Forget idle tempuratures (although that is rather high), what does the card get to at load? When you game or run Furmark, that is more important.

After looking up average tempuratures it seems that card run pretty hot, the general concesus seems to be 62C~ idle, 75C~ load.

After playing GTA IV, maybe for an hour, the temperature gets 82C, i am asking what are the critical temp, because i want to overclock it a little bit.

hopefully using a trustworthy overclocking program (Rivatuner):

visit this website that i found almost a year ago, go through the graphs and comparisons, and most importantly, read through the final words!! I think you'll find everything you've wanted and will be pleased at the testing!!

hope this helps to clarify your decision!
